Photo Comment

Built in 1934 she went on to serve with Fleet Air Arm 802 Sqn in the Mediterranean as the C-Flight commander's aircraft, hence the yellow markings. Rediscovered in 1972 on a rubbish dump in Kent, corroded but more or less complete, she was acquired by Aero Vintage leading to this remarkable restoration.
